Have you ever thought about it, I mean really thought about the fact that God’s favor towards you will last a life time. Psalm 30:5 states, “for his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for a night, but joy comes in the morning. The more I think about that, the more in awe of God I become. You see if you’re anything like meit can be hard to really believe that no matter what, God has us and he will never let us go. It is not based on how good we are, or how much we do, or how little we sin, or how many times we read the bible. It has to do with how great His love is for us, and how great His salvation is towards us. How completely His blood has cleansed us, and how strong His hand will keep us. You see His favor towards us is for a lifetime, both this life and the life to come. Because of what Jesus did for us on the cross, once we accept Him as our Savior God’s favor will never leave us. We don’t have to worry, we don't have to fear; God is for us. So what does it mean to you today that the God of the universe, yes the God who created all things, the God who overcame death, that God has your back. How shall we respond to such a great truth, how do we repay such a great gift? Well we can’t repay it, but we can respond. We can live our lives in a manner worthy of such a great God. We can love Him with all our hearts, our minds, and our strength. We can show His love towards all those that we encounter, and we can be in awe of our God. Yes, the God whose favor is for a lifetime.
